As we approach the Fourth of July holiday, it's hard to keep our heads from spinning over enormous questions arising in the United States and many places around the globe, especially ones that concern the meaning of freedom and independence. We have put together a toolkit of practices and other resources that we hope can help support you as you consider your own role in these times. Click through to see the mailing we just sent to those receiving updates from the Practicing Democracy Project. It's packed with good, fun, and useful ideas for celebrating the Fourth and beyond.
Roger Housden's sixth e-course for Spirituality & Practice (we keep getting asked for more!) explores how paintings speak to our perceptions of self, vision, and meaning. Learn from Emma Amos, Katsushika Hokusai, Henri Matisse, Bada Shanran, Antonia Showering, and more.
We can all benefit from practices to comfort, nourish, and prepare us to re-dream the world in a time of pandemic. Many spiritual traditions have long recognized the need for Time Out of Ordinary Time -- a time when the trance of the familiar is broken -- and Wayne draws upon them to provide guidance.
